Natural Rubber Gum

p10_Rubber.jpgLooking at production trends of natural rubber worldwide, the total yield from plantations in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia accounts for 70% of the whole. 

Currently, motor vehicle manufacturers use 1.24 million tons annually, and as production increases, the demand for natural rubber will also rise and there is a potential for production increases in natural rubber producing countries. The total usage tonnage of natural rubber is 13, 800, 000 tons, but the demand from Asia, in particular China and India, for natural rubber is expected to increase several fold in future and it is attracting attention as a cash crop. 

Laos is a neighboring country of Thailand and has a similar climatic environment. Farmland and workers are easy to come by and put into a business plan, and the rubber that has been produced can be sold on good terms in the Thai market. 

I.O.D.'s rubber production areas are in two regions. In Chanthaburi Province and Rayong Province in southern Thailand we produce rubber mainly for the Japanese market, and natural rubber from Mae Sot Province and Mae Hong Son Province in the north is mainly sent directly to China and Vietnam. The other production base is Laos. The places are Champasak, Pakse, and Paksong in the south where the soil is really good and these are the best areas for agriculture. The farmland spanning both countries is about 80 ha in Thailand and 500hs in Laos, but there is about another 1500ha in Laos that is being turned into as yet unused farmland. Future rubber harvesting will commence in the 7th year.

I.O.D. offers 3 purchasing options for companies wanting to purchase the raw rubber.

① Purchase natural rubber produced by I.O.D. on its own farms.
②Through I.O.D., contract local farms to cultivate and produce the product. 
③ Direct management by the company of cultivation and production on land provided by I.O.D. 

Please contact I.O.D. for further details.
